Only Marginally Twilight-related: Vampire Skeleton Exhumed -- Maybe Vampires Do Exist!

If just reading about Edward Cullen wasn't enough for you, maybe you can have your happily ever after with a vampire after all! ;-)

Italian archaeologists have just unearthed a supposed vampire skeleton from a mass grave of plague victims in Venice:
"At the time the woman died, many people believed that the plague was spread by "vampires" which, rather than drinking people's blood, spread disease by chewing on their shrouds after dying. Grave-diggers put bricks in the mouths of suspected vampires to stop them doing this, Borrini says."
Inneresting. Verrryyy inneresting. Read more at ABC News. Thanks to Ramona.
